Dawn Raids, Search and Seizure

Our lawyers understand how the unexpected nature of a search or dawn raid will always be an incredibly stressful and disruptive experience. This is why we ensure to be on hand immediately for our clients.

Head of our white-collar crime, investigations and regulatory group is Thomas Cattee who himself spent part of his career as Lead Investigative Lawyer at the Serious Fraud Office (SFO). Combining this insight and a team of experienced lawyers in planning and executing searches, we are able to provide reassuring and expert legal advice in these difficult times.

Dawn Raids, Search and Seizure

We understand that steps taken in immediate response to such invasive actions are of critical importance to any subsequent investigation.  We critically challenge, if appropriate, any actions taken at the outset and establish a solid foundation for responding effectively to any subsequent investigation and proceedings.

We rely on expert knowledge and experience to both challenge (if appropriate) search warrants themselves whilst also closely scrutinising the actions taken during any search.

Our experience and appreciation of the stringent legal steps needed to be taken in advance of, and during, any search, is second to none. We work diligently with teams across the practice and are able to offer expertise with regards to any interviews that follow and advice on whether to initiate an internal investigation if appropriate.
